Ashland, OR (PRWEB) October 18, 2007
360 Interchange, Inc. provided strand-woven bamboo flooring for the episode of the critically-acclaimed show Living with Ed, which aired on HGTV Monday night, October 16th. In the show, Ed Begley, Jr. and his wife Rachelle Carson visited an eco-remodel of a bedroom for a family that has made significant changes in their life to live more sustainably. The flooring from 360 Interchange was an integral component of the room's makeover, providing a unique aesthetic in addition to long-lasting durability from a rapidly-renewable resource, bamboo.
360 Interchange's bamboo products are "mature harvest" to ensure the long-term sustainability of the crop, and low-VOC to make sure that there is no toxic outgassing in the home after installation. Strand woven bamboo is a unique flooring product that uses strands of bamboo that are weaved together and then compressed into a solid product using adhesive. The final product is up to twice as hard as traditional oak flooring, but because bamboo can be harvested every 5 years sustainably, producers can create twenty or more generations of product in the amount of time needed for one harvest of oak.
"We were very to happy have the opportunity to reach such a large audience with the potential pitfalls and eco-friendly advantages of bamboo flooring, as well as install some of our sustainable flooring products for a wonderful family that is making smart choices about how to live more sustainably" said Vice President of Marketing & Business Development, Josh Bradley.
